Master of Arts in Practical Theology

Lead and serve others in your unique calling.

Faith communities are in need of ethical religious educators who honor the past, are curious about the present and have a creative vision for the future. The Practical Theology degree prepares you to thrive in these roles.

The successor to the Master of Arts in Christian Education, the 59-credit-hour MAPT will equip you to provide expert leadership for the formation and transformation of those you serve.
